Happy Hour: You Go Girls

  • A recent survey found that Tennessee has “at least one female CEO” these days, and she leads Regal Entertainment in Knoxville. Less than 10% of Tennessee’s corporate board positions are held by women. [WPLN]
  • A temporary free medical clinic will be set up at McGavock High School this weekend, staffed by hundreds of awesome volunteers. [WKRN]
  • Metro is still trying to figure up how to make up all those snow days, so they’re surveying parents to help determine the best option. The current options are listed out on MNPS’ website. [WSMV]
  • Mayor Dean has once again voiced his support for the proposed nondiscrimination ordinance, which would require all Metro contractors with more than 15 employees to institute a nondiscrimination policy that covers sexual orientation and gender identity. [WPLN]
  • Interim TSU president Portia Holmes Shields is making a ton of changes at the university to hopefully help get things back on track. While we’re not sure that requiring staff to answer the phones with, “Good morning, TSU, the land of golden sunshine” will do a whole lot to help, it sure does make us want to call them. [WSMV]
